Minimal information exists regarding the consistency and correlates of dentists’ implementation of risk mitigation strategies when prescribing opioids, including risk screening, prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) use, and patient education. The authors conducted a Web-based, cross-sectional survey among practicing dentist members of The National Dental Practice-Based Research Network. The authors used the survey to assess pain management prescribing practices and risk mitigation implementation. The authors linked survey data with network enrollment questionnaire data to include practitioner demographic and practice characteristics.

Key Words: Pain; patient education; prescriptions; drug.
